Urinary tract infection or UTI is a bacterial infection and is very common though it goes unreported in many cases. Some people tend to suffer the condition in silence because they are too embarrassed or shy to report it. This is especially true of women who think that hygiene practices will be questioned if they go for the treatment of UTI.
The truth is that getting infected with UTI is not indicative of your personal hygiene. Instead it means that your body is under attack from bacteria that have grown rapidly in number because they found the environment favorable for quick multiplication. There are many ways in which you can deal with urinary tract infection at home if you don’t wish to see a doctor.
